Athens, GreeceShow Random
The Acropolis is the most important ancient site in the Western world. Crowned by the Parthenon, it stands over Athens, visible from almost everywhere within the city. Its monuments of Pentelic marble shine white in the midday sun and gradually take on a honey hue as the sun sinks, while at night they hover above the city illuminated. A glimpse of this magnificent sight cannot fail to lift your spirits. Costs are adult/concession €12/6 and hours are 8am-7pm Apr-Oct, 8am-5pm Nov-Mar.
